This citrus fruit possesses a re-energizing and refreshing scent that is valued in culinary dishes and for therapeutic purposes. Often used in beverages and entrées, one example of lime’s traditional use in drinks is that of lime juice which was a favorite amongst British sailors in the 18th century. Not only was the fruit’s citrus flavor refreshing, but limes were also believed to prevent scurvy; this popular drink prompted the nickname “limeys,” when referring to British seamen. High in antioxidants and limonene, lime essential oil can serve the immune system by combating free radicals and cleansing and purifying the air. This benefit can be obtained through diffusion or through surface cleaning. Skin can also reap these purifying properties, through use in facial and body cleansers. Moreover, the oil is a mood stimulant – uplifting, re-energizing and balancing the body and mind.
